Em sherif restaurant is an experience not to be missed ! Traditional Lebanese food and the full Lebanese mezza experience. The best part is it’s a set menu and when it comes to mezza this takes all the guessing out of what to choose. You get a bit of everything and experience Lebanon in every bite !

Brilliant place. Food was amazingly fresh and the restaurant only offers Arabic set menu so no thinking required, just a big appetite. Live beautiful Arabic entertainment from 10.30pm. We were the first to arrive at 8.30 but the place was full by 9.30pm.

If you are looking for a restaurant that serves the best and most delicious Lebanese food ın Lebanon, you need to visit Em Sharif. At first, once they start to place the small and many dishes in front of you , you feel like it's not enough to fulfill your hunger. But once you start tasting a bite from here and there, you will feel like how the hell i am going to taste all this. Because each plate is an experience by itself. The decoration is very unique and rustic making you live the old Beirut. 4 stars just because the waiters were not so friendly under pressure.

If you are willing to taste the authentic Lebanese cuisine , this is the place . A nice place to dine and enjoy light traditional music and taste a large variety (mostly all ) of traditional tasty food .
A must to try, won't regret it.
